, right? it's not your typical multiple network life news event. but hillary clinton was never just some cabinet secretary, right? well, today, four years later at the start of the second term of the obama administration it was a similar scene for hillary clinton as she said goodbye to the same state department employees from almost the same spot where they welcomed her four years ago. >> now it's my great honor to introduce one last time the 67th secretary of state of the united states of america, hillary rodham clinton. [ cheering and applause ] >> oh. >> secretary clinton still greeted like a rock star today at the agency she has led for the past four years. hillary clinton, of course, is not just somebody who came in a very close second to barack obama in trying to win the democratic party's presidential nomination, who then got a high-ranking cabinet post as a consolation prize. no, hillary clinton is really her own thing. her career in public life, in public office is unlike anybody else in american history. she went from being an accomplished lawyer in her early career to being th

guns for the rest of the clinton presidency, including after columbine. then kentucky, west, virginia, states that clinton had carried before, that really reinforced the '94 message for democrats. it's a warning an opportunity, it's the 2014 mid terms. there's probably going to be some sort of legislative action now. i think this is a long-term thing. if can you go into the 2014 mid terms and you have the president engaged, the democrats engaged and for instance, mayor bloomberg, if he throws himself into this financially and politically, if the message that democrats and republicans take out of 2014 is the opposite -- >> don't be on the wrong side of this -- >> right. there's momentum to really do more after 2014. >> that's fascinating. it could disproven this year. we'll be right back. ♪ if it wasn't for you ♪ don't know what i'd do ♪ i'd have nothing to prove [ male announcer ] introducing the celebration diamond collection. zales is the diamond store. let love shine. stay top of mind with customers? from deals that bring them in with an offer... to social media pro

last time that a democratic president, in this case it was president clinton, introduced powerful new federal laws, we ended up incarcerating black kids, kids from the west and south side of chicago, kids from towns like new orleans. there is just a little part of me that keeps being concerned that on the one hand, yes, we must push for tougher regulations. but how do we keep the regulations from falling on the backs of the very kids we're trying to protect? >> here is the point. we need a holistic approach to this. we can't just look -- it's true. i wouldn't want to get on an airport where four out of ten people didn't get checked, right? so four out of ten people don't get checked for handguns in america. so that's not the kind of way we should conduct ourselves. conversely, let's face it. we have a responsibility to have economic engines out there. because, i mean, the demand for drugs is so huge and continues to spiral out of control in this country. let's face it. there is a direct correlation. the propensity for drugs comes from the selling of drugs and the protecting of those d

and hillary clinton and joe biden and dianne feinstein and chuck schumer and 24 other democrats in the senate and all but one of the republicans in the senate all voted yes. and yeah, there were democrats who were against the war from the beginning. and that one republican, lincoln chaffee. but there were enough democrats who said yes and went along with it. that's part of the reason the war happened. the difference over time is that republican chuck hagel and most of the democrats who were wrong about iraq, they figured out that they were wrong and they turned against the war and ultimately they tried to end the war because it had been a mistake. we can say mistake in the technical sense here, right? the war was started to go get weapons of mass destruction from saddam and to stop saddam from helping al qaeda. well, saddam had no relationship with al qaeda that we were stopping. and saddam had no weapons of mass destruction. it was wrong. the war was factually wrong. right? we have learned that. this is not a controversial assertion. john mccain led the senate today in trying ton

outgoing secretary hillary clinton. john kerry joked today that he had big heels to fill as the new secretary of state. president obama's second major nominee to face a confirmation hearing was another national security pick, the former senator chuck hagel. his confirmation hearings for defense secretary were not a breeze. the vote on his nomination has not yet happened. republicans in the senate are now hinting that they might even filibuster chuck hagel's nomination for defense, which of course sounds normal, because, you know, it seems like republicans filibuster anything now. but in fact that would not be normal that would be unprecedented if they do it. the reason republicans are even considering doing this unprecedented thing is because they cannot block chuck hagel's nomination by normal means. even though the republicans have persuaded lots of the senators on their own side to oppose his nomination, they are a minority. and they have not persuaded any democrats to oppose him at all, at least none that have come out so far and said they'll vote no. now, there was that strange
